hi guys,

I've recently recieved a new computer. I've always used ms outlook 2000, the new machine has ms outlook 2003. i use a ms exchange type account for my work emails. i set up the account as usual but i'm only seeing emails from like dec 2003 in my inbox. the new mail folder is picking up some new emails in the spam folders and another folder i have. basically i'm not recieving my emails. i've tried sending emails to the account and their not coming through. where did all the recent emails from my inbox go?? they are there because i can access the account through a webmail account and everyhting is as usual, but once i open outlook i just get all these old emails. anyone got any advice??

Thanks,

Kevin

Try a detect and repair.  It is on the Help menu.
You can't receive from the Exchange Server?

Where are the old mails? In a pst or in the mailbox on the server
How is configured the Delivery location? mailbox wwww, yyyy or elsewhere
Did you do a Check Names: was the server and your aliasname underlined and you full display name displayed underlined.
Is filtering turned on?

The very last stupid cquestion: are you connected to the network? ;-)
